Publisher: DÉFOSZ (National Federation of Working Peasants and Agrarian Workers) — ДЕФОС (Всевенгерская организация земледельцев)
DÉFOSZ was a Hungarian agro-political organization founded in December 1948 to unite the working peasantry under a single state-controlled organization. Its origins were based on the Communist-supported UFOSZ (National Association of New Landowners) and FÉKOSZ (National Association of Agrarian Workers and Smallholders), both formed in 1946 in Hungary. By 1950, DÉFOSZ eroded into a vehicle for local officials rather than an organization that protected the interests of the nation's peasants.
